101 English Blogs - Latest posts!

New starts and new ideas

Before I get into this: I am Mark Kilmer, and I teach IB English at The International School of Helsinki, and I blog at What circumspection! What delicacy of conscience! (Extra credit for anyone who knows where I got the name). Clair asked if I would like to contribute to 101 English Blogs, and I thought I would. So I am.

My idea is to look at the feed and just see what catches my eye for whatever reason. So here we go for the last few days:
  • There are several new blogs just starting up or transitioning into something else. (Mine was a recent transition as well.) I'm excited to see what they turn out in the next few weeks.
  • Also intriguing are the posts from folks in the southern hemisphere about the beginning of the school year (like Tam's Changes). For me, in the frozen wastelands of the second trimester, the sense of a fresh start makes me want to have that same energy I had in my second or third week. So thanks for that.
  • I liked KDixon's post on an education webinar. The link was well worth watching, and I like the idea of developing my own essential questions as a learner/teacher.
  • A post I'll use and apply: the SCC English post looking at political manifestos via Wordle. It's a great application of the program and allows focus on diction in a way that's accessible and authentic.

  2. Hi friends,

    This is the true story of me.I'm making a little extra money this year with some websites I'm participating in. It costs nothing to join.

    I tried all sorts of things and I seemed to be paying out more than actually earn with the other opportunities. I'm finally starting to bring the money in. It takes abit of time but if you are persistent you will do it! Now I can relax and not worry about being short money to pay for groceries or monthly bills etc. and I have the freedom to buy whatever I want now without worry.

    Are you successful online now? If so how are you making money online? I tried various things like selling ebooks, Ebay, Google Adwords, Affiliate marketing, blogs etc. Believe me I found it very hard and overwhelming sometimes. It feels good to find something that works for a change.

    Good luck to you all! Thank God for the internet! It has brought so much to those that want/need to work at
